East-West motorway – motorway link to the city of Batna
In 2014, the ANA awarded to ANAS International Enterprise S.p.A., as part of a temporary association with the Algerian state-owned company LNHC (Laboratoire National de l’Habitat et de la Construction) – the Site Supervision activities (BSC - Bureau de Contrôle et Suivi) for the Batna motorway link – East-West motorway of 62 Km.
The project, 62 km long, provides for the construction of a dual carriageway road linking the city of Batna and the East-West motorway, which features certain peculiarities, such as crossing an area with seasonal lakes, the presence of highly compressible soil and the construction of long viaducts. The project is divided into two construction Lots, awarded to local and international contractors.
The role of the BCS (Bureau de Contrôle et Suivi) consists in performing site supervision activities in support of ANA, which remains the official Site Supervisor. It has the following main tasks: controlling and overseeing the works with the approval of the construction design, controlling the quality of the materials and works, controlling the topographical aspects of the project, checking the quantities and, generally speaking, providing technical assistance to the Site Supervisor, in respect of all the supervisory and management activities.
